. >> governor there is still plenty of time for mr. romney to make inroads in your fair state, but why do you think he's doing so badly? is it because he had done nothing to save the auto industry? is it because he says he doesn't care about half the population of the country? or is it because nobody understands what he stands for outside of tax cuts? >> all of the above, martin. beginning when we found out he had a swiss bank account, investments in the caymen islands -- >> switzer land. >> outsourcer of jobs. he went on and on and on. his wife has two cadillacs, an elevator for his cars in his home. and then he says on videotape that he's writing off 47% of the american people just basically talking in the most disdainful way about good hard working americans. veterans, poor people who are working their hearts out to make a living. >> governor have ii have to -- i'm sorry, i have to interrupt you because mr. romney and mr. ryan are saying it's the president who are into social divisiveness. they are the ones splitting the countries between the have and have nots. the
for the emergency services, and mr. romney might consider doing the same with the president now leading nine swing states by an average of six points consistent with his national average. the three newest battleground polls show yet more evidence of mr. romney's september slump. north carolina, the president up by two. nevada, the president up by two. even new hampshire, site of one of mr. romney's many luxury homes, the president leading by seven points. but what about all that jet skiing? well, never fear, mitt's hard at work doing what he does best, attending a fund-raiser today at philadelphia's union club. here it is, looks quite posh. i guess it should be at $50,000 a plate. wait a minute, no, sorry, that's wrong. that's a mistake. that was actually from "trading places," the firm of duke & duke. here is the actual video. let's listen to mr. romney on his chances in the keystone state. >> on november 6th i'm going to win pennsylvania and i'm going to become the next president of the united states. >> okay. just to clarify, the romney campaign is running no ads whatsoever in pennsylvania. mr.
mr. romney really does care. just listen as he explained his compassionate side to nbc's ron mott last night. >> don't forget, i got everybody in my state insured, 100 b% of e kids in our state has health insurance. i don't think there's anything that shows more empathy and care about the people of this country than that kind of record. >> wow, what a great argument for defending the president a's affordable care act. romney went straight up onto the podium and told us what he really thinks of helping to cover the uninsured. >> obama care is really exhibit number one of the president's political philosophy, and that is that government knows better that be people how to run their lives. >> mitt romney, it's 4:00, just 40 days to election. do you know where your playbook is? let's get right to our handle. with us from washington, msnbc political analyst karen finney, dana mill bank, a political columnist for "the washington post," and mike, a white house correspondent for "time" magazine. karen, mr. romney proudly offered his own health care reform as evidence that he cares about pe
house coespoenr im zi karen, mr. romney proudly offered his own health care reform as evidence that he cares about people. 50 minutes later he says he'll repeal the president's health care reform. two of our producers have been hospitalized for whiplash having been forced to watch which w 's. kful they have health care. is even mr. romney himself now tired of the severely conservative mask that he himself has been forced to wear? >> indeed, i think he is. as we talked about earlier this week, just a year or two or three ago, he had exactly the oppoosion a criticizing the idea that people would, you know, go to emergency rooms and that -- talking very differently about health care. the problem with this is it plays to exactly hisundamental flaw as a candidate, which is u , vekeo 't trust him. people, even conservatives, a friend of mine's conservative mother had the best quote of all. she said i don't know if my issue is going to be the next thing that gets thrown under the bus. so when he whiplashes like this and makes it seem more likes just going to say whaver it is he thinks he nds
states that mr. romney finally sold those shares. he sold his shares the day before he appeared at this republican debate in iowa. i don't know if he thought he would get asked about them or not. now all of this it notes that he's not necessarily personally making the call on these investments. his money is kept in a blind trust. that said the idea you don't have to answer for investments made through a blind trust has been debunked on american politics. i thought this guy's argument was the most convincing on that. >> the blind trust is an age-old rouge to say you can tell the blind trust what it can and can't do. >> those rules include go ahead and invest my mitt romney bucks in the chinese oil company that calls itself a weapon and does business with iran just to spite us. while you're running for president, do that. you know, the election has already started. almost half the states in the country, people can get access to a ballot and vote by mail if they want to. you can do in-person early voting in idaho, south dakota and vermont. that also starts on thursday of this week
model for dealing with problems like this. this may come from the way mr. romney was beaten in 2008. teedhae not get stuck with the flip flopper label again. even though they leave the ads with the lies in them up and sometimes mr. romney goes on tv invents a brand new policy position he's never had before. after he does that, his staff follows behind hnd qly releasing statements faeg back his quotes. when mr. romney was asked in an interview last week about one of his immigration advisers. heaild not confirm whether kris kobch was part of his team. and they yes, he's a romney campaign adviser. so he tells an intviewe's neit him but his campaign says what he said was not true. same thing happened last month when mr. romney came out with a whole new policy position on abortion rights. >> i'm in favor of aion being legaln theasef r annct the health of the life of the mother. >> he says he believes abortion should be allowed to protect a woman'health. afterwards theampaign said that's not what he believes. he doesn actually suppor t l t h a abortion if you need one to protect your heal
he ought to do it. he says, mr. romney can't call mr. obama a liar. that's too harsh a word that might backfire, that would backfire. mr. romney must instead set the record straight in a presidential tone, firm, respectful, but not differential. and a dash of humor is worth its weight in gold. >> yeah, what they are going to go for is the old reagan thing, show me -- you know, what was it, there you go again. and that's what they are going to go for except if i were president obama, i would come back and say, excuse me, you're not ronald reagan and i knew ronald reagan. i mean, you know, it's absolutely crazy. today we're going to have an nfl football game. can you imagine the opposing team giving the other team the playbook? i mean, he doesn't have that many plays in the book to begin with and now here your advisers are, in essence, giving the obama administration -- giving the obama debate team the play that they are going to run as if this president isn't going to be prepared to counter anything. i don't know what kind of campaign they are running and the last thing i wou
secret mt ro vithurd today. this one comes from his years running bain capital and mr. romney's language in the video, once againjust leaves you scratching your head. the same man who said corporions are peop who made al $10, bet with another candidate. the question is, just who is this guy? who wants to lead our nation. mother jones magazine obtained the video. it shows romney ba in 1985 ewedhe companies it was supposedly helping. >> bain capital is an investment partnership which was formed to invest in, startup companies and ongoing companies than to take an active hand in maning them and hopefully five toht yeto harvest them at a significant profit. >> harvest these companies for a profit. that was romney's goal in business. to harvest companies the way you harvest organs, the way you harvest crs. ave stalks behind.goo but we now know this is mitt romney's world view. the world view we only see behind closed doors when he thinks we're not stening. it's what we saw on that secret video where romney said, 47% of amansaw tels victims. today the obama campaign released a devastating new
, he is measured and careful of what he says. when i look at mr. romney, i am so sick and tired of the fear and warmongering and am afraid that he would start another military conflict in the middle east. as a voter, on that topic alone, president obama has my vote, because i do not believe that we and the world can afford another military conflict on this planet. thank you for allowing me to talk this morning. have a good day. host: thank you for your comments this morning. round rock, texas. caller: i agree with the republican that just called in, i also support the president as far as foreign affairs go. mr. romney used to belong to a chinese organization, it was an oil conglomerate. they were supporting iran. in 2011, mr. romney separated himself from these chinese oil conglomerate. he talks out of one side of his mouth, but acts out of another side. he said our greatest threat was russia when our greatest threat right now is al qaeda. i do not think that he has the experience or knowledge to help of foreign affairs. host: what do you make of his foreign policy affairs state
and come back to the main chance here, the issue is whether mr. romney, governor romney is going to inject foreign policy leadership into wednesday's debate. there's enormous speculation, some of it fueled by his op-ed piece in "the wall street journal" that blasted the president. i know the debate is about the economy, but it's also about leadership, do you reckon governor romney will put foreign policy into that debate. >> all this month you're going to have a contrast on the economy and foreign policy. what chairman o'ryan said is the unraveling of the obama foreign policy. the set backs, the killing in the middle east of an american ambassador. a break in our relationship with our most important ally in the region, and in soyria, over 30,000 people are dead. president obama thinks strength is provocative and history teaches us that weak is provocative. and we're weak overseas as we have seen our defense capabilities decrease and as the president hasn't stood up, with resolution for our values. so, yes, leadership is the overriding issue and it plays both foreign policy and on the econo
. >> only one romney can show up on that stage tomorrow night. and i bet president obama will make mr. romney choose which one. joining me now is democratic strategist tadd devine, senior adviser for kerry and gore campaigns and retired captain wes moore, he's the author of the book "the other wes moore." thank you for being here. >> thanks. >> tad, let me start with you. for the debate, isn't romney caught between what his base expects and what independents want to hear? >> absolutely. i mean, i think it's going to be difficult for governor romney to square his positions on so many issues, you know, and make an appeal to the independent swing voters who they're looking to right now, particularly in the battleground states, and keep it consistent with the things he said in the primary. let's face it. the guy won the republican nomination by going to the right of a right-wing slate of candidates. some of the farthest right candidates in history. so, he's going to have a really hard time if he tries to square those things. i think romney will tell him whatever his pulse tells him to do
former new mexico governor gary johnson flanking the president and mr. romney despite the best efforts of his attorneys. the libertarian candidate is that third man. he has now filed an anti-trust lawsuit saying it's a conspiracy he's not invited to the debates. gary johnson joins me now. good day to you, governor. nice to see you again. >> hey. thank you for having me on, alex. >> well, before we talk about this lawsuit i want to put out the numbers here. among likely voters nationally speaking when you're the mix with president obama and mitt romney you get 6% of the vote. that is the best you have polled nationally. but the bar is set by the presidential election commission. it stands at 15%. so do you expect to get there at any point? >> well, let me state the obvious here, alex. do you hear my name six times for every time you hear obama or romney's name 100 times? >> no. >> you hear my name one time for every 5,000 times you hear these guys. if i were just being given that six-time mention for every 100 times these guys were mentioned, you know what? i wouldn't be at 6, i'd be at
in the polls after the paul ryan pick and the cotiasnt t romney campaign has stumbled repeatedly. yet mr. romney, who is losing by five or more points in iowa, colorado, wisconsin, michigan, ohio, florida and virginia, sees blue skies ahead. askehow he intended to turn his campaign ound, mr. romney esneturnaround.s," ,t and romney surrogates were out over the weekend blaming the liberal media for the campaign's troubles. the press didn't treat ronald reagan and george w. bush any less unfairly, and both men managed not onlyo win the presencyutge re-elected. mr. romney would do better to focus more on reducing his unforcedrrors and less on the fourth estate's political bias. ifhining about the liberal media was a winning strategy for republicans, newtingrich wou be t mi" well, and newt gingrich is a great example -- i don't mean to go back there -- a great example of the problem we're talking about here. because -- >> no. >> -- no, instead of stepping forward and separating himself from this candidate, he somehow, becausof his party -- at distraction.. >> it is. >> i'm talking about the p
on the obama record. certainly that rhetoric from mr. romney fits with that in recent weeks they said really a choice. dependency society based on the obama agenda of bigger government and bigger government intrusion into the lives of individual entrepreneural spirit of the american people versus romney view is less government, less regulation, less intrusion and more personal responsibility and opportunities of prosperity versus stagnation. there is a point on which you could expect the obama campaign and the president to pick at mr. romney tomorrow if it doesn't come up in a question at all. now the infamous rashes about the 47% who don't pay income taxes in the u.s. and that surreptitiously obtained video from several weeks back at a florida fund-raiser. the 47% is sure to come up. when he arrived last night at denver mr. romney did an interview with local affiliate, local fox station as a matter of fact and they asked him about it. here is how mr. romney intends to sort of deal with that issue of the 47%. >> they want to know is, will he get jobs for the american people and get rising in
for serious answers and accounting for what's happened in libya the last couple of days. mr. romney has been sparring with rob portman the senator from ohio with mock debates. he will spend literally the next four days off the campaign trail heading preparing for it he will head to denver on monday. debate preps in boston. more closed door rehearsals leading up to wednesday. knows this is a big opportunity for him to regain momentum having slid in the polls for several weeks now. he talked a little bit on campaign plane as he was on his way back from philadelphia to boston where he will spend the weekend doing more research. watch. >> they will make the decision on what they believe is the best interest of the country and their own family. i expect to be able to describe that in a way people will understand. and if they do, i will get elected. romney was referring to the first opportunity to stand face to face with president obama and call him on what mr. romney has said has been a mischaracterization and deception of the the same holds on the other side of this. three presidential debates a
in benghazi that left the u.s. ambassador dead the mr. romney was clear he would give additional foreign policy speeches in today's speech in front. cgi. we can expect him toe be particularly critical are president for what romney has said has been an inadequate assertion of american values overseas during this mounting violence across the middle east and north africa. this morning at this event with president clinton mr. romney joked about how nice it is occasionally to have introduction from bill clinton and suggested he will wait for the bounce. a reference to the one that president obama got after the democratic national convention insofar clinton's speech was the one best received there. romney holding his partisan punches talked a lot about the world's problems. he says he has a plan to deal with u.s. foreign aid would in essence link it to trade and develop nations willing to open their markets there would be monetary and financial aid and assistance that would benefit them from the united states. an example of how top of the mind it is for this whole entire campaign and the candi
. in that ad we just saw, you heard mr. romney say that president obama cares for the middle class and poor people as i do. of course he does. and of course mitt romney does. anyone that thinks otherwise would be rather jaded. but the fact of the matter is what mitt romney is trying to convey is is that his policies will be better. you might like president obama as a person, carol, but his policies haven't worked for the past four years. >> some republicans think that's not such a good strategy. they think that mitt romney should be just as hard on president obama as he has been in the past and the softening of issues only confuses republican voters, especially core voters. >> it's not his job to be outwardly partisan. he's supposed to be the states man. he's the one supposed to be talking about ideas. allow the super pacs to be do that, these outside groups tending hundreds of millions of dollars on television ads, let them be the ones who go out and attack barack obama, not mitt romney. so in many ways i think there's a level of frustration with the romney campaign from conservatives that
that would help mitt romney. >> you would think it is. it probably does to an extent. one of the problems mr. romney has is that voters just don't like him very much. we asked voters if they have a favorable, unfavorable of the president. they have a net unfavorable of the president and unfavorable for mitt romney. >> pollsters have been under fire from the right. >> you know it's a piece of garbage. i believe it's head to head in new hampshire. i've seen enough other polls to tell you that is a piece of garbage. >> calling it garbage. governor sununu wasn't talking about one of your polls, but one in new hampshire. how do you fight against kill the messenger? is this different than the past? >> it's not all that different. quinnipiac and most major polls do not weight their polls for party i.d. if someone passes our voter screen, they pass our likely voter. we ask if they are a democrat, republican or independent. voter identification and party identification is a changing characteristic. in 2010, democrats were complaining about the polls because party i.d. figures were republican. in ohio
with the campaign. you have to explain this to me, this is time mr. romney should be talking about middle income tax cuts. he's got a great reform plan, and he's got to help average americans losing money on a daily basis. what's going on here? why is he dialing back his tax cut plan? >> oh, well, larry, certainly not doing that, and it's really very consistent with what he's been saying on the stump ever since he announced this great plan and he's emphasized this is a tremendous pro-growth, pro-jobs tax plan, marginal tax cuts, and it's going to produce 7 million jobs over the next seven years. contrast that with the president's plan which we know is to raise taxes. >> i've known you a long time. what did he say? he didn't say what you just said. i know you're a supply sider. i go et that. he said today, don't expect big tax cuts, then went off talking about eliminating tax deductions. and you take a look, dropping the tax rate by 20% across the board for middle-income people, you can have -- you can have tax run 3,000 all the way up to 12,000. those are tremendous tax savings. that's what mitt rom
debattleground states. florida, pennsylvania and ohio, where mr. romney is now trailing by ten points. >>> plus this -- >> israel frustrate the that iranian president mahmoud ahmadinejad will address the unja on the holiest of jewish holidays. will his comments ratchet up tensions even higher? live from jerusalem. "newsroom" starts now. >>> and good morning. i'm carol costello. ref rage. a lot of people sayal deba aing ruining the day. it's not just about saving face. it's about saving sunday. >> reporter: in controversy here. the winning touchdown call of the infamous disputed play was by the book. still, nearly everyone is talking trash, from the ladies on "the talk." >> feels unfair, looks unfair it is unfair. >> to republican vice president candidate paul ryan. >> did you watch that packer game last night? >> reporter: to the president of the united states. who says -- i've been saying for months, we've got to get our refs back. oh, mr. president, that is a bipartisan plea. roger goodell, the nfl commission sir trying. now from contracts with the once beloved men in stripes. players yearn f

interesting point. lou: we hope it will be a show. mr. obama, i would question mr. romney's business credentials. lou: governor run the show and a bank statement? would that satisfy you? >> i think obama is going to be lucky that foreign policy is not part of the first debate. you have to wait until october october 16th. only domestic policy. the first debate, of what will be surface impressions. this is the last time mitt romney will have a chance to make a good first impression of the bunch of others who have only seen -- >> what should you try to convey in that first impression with millions of americans? >> presidential stature, the ability to the executive as governor of massachusetts and the business world. lou: to the obama have presidential stature? >> he is the president. lou: that is presidential. i agree that he will be. the last four years he has been our president. lou: talking about governor romney. >> here is what i'm looking at for wednesday. that one of the first times president obama has been pushed the last four years. seven the white house have not served there. n
of a certain type of economics that governor kasich espouses that mr. romney would of course, follow. so i think there's that factor in ohio you have to remember. ohio next to wisconsin was the calderon of this battle between workers trying to have -- >> jennifer: you think the residual battle will carry forward until november? that emotion that people felt? >> i think so. >> jennifer: i want to get you into something more specific because this is being played right now in ohio, advertisement that romney is running on tv. take a listen. >> policies of the current administration's got is attacking my livelihood. >> they're wanting to close these mines down. >> we have 250 years of coal. why wouldn't we use it? utility bills are up. people wonder how they're going to have a brighter future if they can't see how they can make it to the end of the next month. >> jennifer: very interesting because coal is an industry that's a union industry. is president obama to blame for coal industry layoffs? will that ad be effective?
this is -- for and it's interesting that the issues that i think mr. romney are social issues. these are basic economic issues. you are talk about equal pay? they understand that. and access to birth control has been -- for some reason mr. ryan was saying on day one they would get rid of insurance for birth control, 99% of women in this country actually use birth control, and for them it is an economic issue. we're looking at two different profiles of tickets, and mr. romney and mr. ryan who seem to want to move us back to the 1950s. >> stephanie: i think i told you the story, that i once got to sit on the floor of a living room, listening to your mom speak. we were gathered like a bunch of laboratory puppies. and then i had to stand next to you and aisha tyler at the party -- and in spite of shattering my self-esteem -- >> oh, it is a very exciting day. there is nothing my mother would have loved to read more than the opening to richards on broadway. >> stephanie: well it is just a thrill to talk to you and thank you so much for breaking the news here. >> okay. have a good
rd. >> krystal, wanted to cut mr. romney some slack. to be fair, the area that he is up is until budget deficit and he's winning in the polls 4%. it's the only area that he beats the president 4% in terms of the deficit. but before you celebrate that -- >> i'm celebrating that. >> -- the bloomberg poll finds that 50% of americans view him unfavorably. 50%. that's the worst september rating for a presidential challenger in three decades of the poll. the worst. >> it's really bad. and you've got republicans saying, just wait for the debates. that's when people are going to tune in. >> every time he's had one of these moments -- and every time he's had one of these moments, not only has he failed to capitalize on them, in fact, he's fallen further behind. i don't think mitt romney is up to the task of turning this thing around and i don't think there are enough undecided voters left. >> bob, he's still digging in, feeling he could win white working-class voters in ohio on this welfare claim. he's sticking to his guns on the claim that the president wants to roll back work requiremen
is joining us now from washington, d.c. kevin good to see you. what is the one thing that mr. romney will do to try and push ahead with his economic agenda that he has not been doing and that needs to be doing in previous weeks? >> well, i think that the biggest thing coming up is that governor romney is going to have a chance to speak directly to the american people in the debates and to challenge president obama. you know, one of the untold stories of this campaign for example is that president obama has absolutely no plan to create jobs. that thing they were waving at the convention, his 4 trillion dollars plan was actually just his budget from last year which went -- which went to the floor of the house and senate and got no votes. that kind of conversation is not getting through because of the mainstream media bias. dagen: mr. romney can also speak for himself. he has been widely criticized i was watching the o'reilly factor with bill o'reilly just last night about lack of specifics. he was asked in the interview of 60 minutes to get specific on the tax breaks he would get rid of, and h
, mr. romney or president obama, that's not true because with so many people watching, people want to know i'm hearing the truth. it shouldn't be let me wait two hours later to get the truth. call them out on the lies whoever says it, on the spot. >> sometimes, that takes a tough level of preparation. >> that's why you have a team to decide and that's their job. >> it's not just about preparation. >> subjective. i can't believe i'm saying that -- >> president obama -- promised he would not raise middle class taxes. in his affordable care act, there are a number of tax increases that will impact households making less than $250,000 per year. one thing or another is that a tax increase or not? it is through the tax system. so, did you lie? he's going to say no, i did not lie. >> you say something, you call him out on it. here's the deal. romney's not going to try to bring it up in the debate. nor will president obama because the moment you do, you have opened the door for your opponent to actually you out. so, responsibility's going to rest on the debate moderator, who is not going t
. just before the show tasta stard w we had breaking news. mr. romney how says in addition to his 20% across the board tax cuts he would help pay for that by capping tax deductions at $17,000 across the board. i want to give you a shot to comment. >> i find it strange larry, that in this moment before the debate that we are getting a revisited mathematics. it was obvious that it didn't just add up. so what they are going to do is eat into the mortgage deduction for middle class people. you know what that does for the citizens in the districts? >> nothing. >> you would rather let them keep their deductions? >> that is not one of them. the mortgage deduction is critical to the lifeline in the state of new jersey >> last one, what would you cap? can you give me one. >> in terms of second homes, property which is tremendous value i think these are things that we can look at. >> languahang on. next up our candidates are going to tackle the movement vexing issues of the election. you are not going to want to miss what they had to say.
